Hackers Bring Back OtherOS For PS3

Following the release of the PS3MFW Builder, the efforts to bring back OtherOS onto the PlayStation 3 had been all but abandoned. Now, however, a hacking group has successfully managed to bring back OtherOS to the PS3.

actually, OtherOS never would have went away if...... wait, where is Georgy going?

Doesn't matter now, it could have improved over the upcoming generations, now we'll never see the otherOS feature in the PS3 again...

These virgins and what they spend their time on...

fedexas2269d ago

....I don't even use OtherOS. All I did was play bluray movies and games. So you mean to tell me that these idiots hacked the PS3 just for that? I'm pretty sure this can be used on a PC?

I never used other OS either but was the advantages of it?

For the normal average gamer none but for people like me who can code and write simple programs it nice to run the code i have written on my 360 or ps3.
360 has XNA where programmers can make stuff in.

Why not just order the SDK from the companies like I did?.... Instead of taking the cheap route.

lolwutt12342268d ago

@radphil: Because the actual SDK is incredibly overpriced and it comes with free NDA's.

emulators, play nes/snes games on it.

sikbeta2269d ago

It was a lame @ss linux version for PS3 that run average at best because of the amount of memory usable and the RSX was locked...

Congrats you got your useless feature back...you know an easy hack to get it? Dont agree to PSN terms and dont update...

Now leave the real gamers alone and let us play in peace.

I was going to say that same thing when I read this. I guess all those hackers can stop complaining and being miserable now that they can have this back right? Hopefully...
